My new Turbo!

Hello all,
I have researched and dug deep into the forums for a while
and finally decided to pull the trigger on a clean
2001 6-speed 996 with 38k miles.

The car was previously owned by Matt LeBlanc I'm told

Fairly stock except for some Techart bits and pieces.

More updates to come when I get the car.

Matt was on Top gear and he said that he had a 996tt and he made some tuning on it...

Thanks, this car was actually mentioned on Conan and other interviews as well.
I wonder if I qualify as a celebrity now

Thanks again for the kind words.
